Re: LDE -Big Blank Page

I discovered my problem this morning. :beer: At some point in the job I tried to set a dishwasher from the Appliance folder of the flyout screen. I was set to Align to Back but the dishwasher simply seemed to disappear when I placed it. I hit ESC and selected another Dishwasher to place but this tim...

LDE -Big Blank Page

Hi- I haven't posted in quite some time. I have an issue with the Line Drawing Editor. I have had this problem many times before but it always seems to be fixed by closing/opening the job or by rebooting. Currently the problem is occurring with a specific job. No matter what view I select to view, I...

Hello Thermwood! Things have been great with 6 Build 15 for months. Everything much better and faster. Until today. Suddenly the LDE crashes the program. I have tried different jobs, closing program and restarting, shutting down and rebooting, downloaded lastest video driver and nothing seems to mak...

MDF Doors not picked up in LDE

Is it just me or is this another "feature" of the Line Drawing Editor. I have created cabinets with flush MDF doors and drawer fronts. The LDE fails to see any pick-points on the d/d so it is not possible to check their dimensions or distances to/from them and any other pick-point. I have ...

Editing Walls

This a a longstanding issue for me: Once I have created a room in custom layout (all walls with build direction facing inward) and take a simple wall to the wall editor to create geometry for window openings I am never certain which side of the wall I am looking at. In other words, I don't know if I...

Re: Disappearing Cabinets

Hi Scott- Thanks for replying. I did just what you said- I threw out the entire job and started from scratch and I have not had a repeat of the problem. In the "problem" room I did create a "stem" wall in the middle of a long wall and at right angles to it. In the new room I crea...

Disappearing Cabinets

Since the recent time update I began a new kitchen in room layout and populated it with cabinets from a couple of my personal libraries that have never posed a problem. I saved the room and when I reopened the job the next day there were at least 6 cabinets missing. I replaced the cabinets, saved, c...

Thom- Your avatar almost made me soil myself. Have you considered adding meditation to the mix? At least as successful as all the rest (and less taxing) :wall: :beer:

Re: Frameless Oven Cabinets

Thanks Wally. I think that in my obsessive attempt to create a totally frame-less oven cabinet for my frame-less library I have just made life more difficult (all those nasty stretchers that constantly need attention). I have actually achieved the frameless oven cabinet before (so the front plane of...

Frameless Oven Cabinets

Would love to hear from someone who has solved the problem of building frameless oven cabinets: single oven, double oven, microwave over oven. I have managed by using stretchers for "midrails" in a frameless cabinet to allow for separation between an appliance and door/dwr above or below b...

Redrawing Error

When moving a cabinet between editors (Cabinet Editor, Shelf Editor, Door/Drawer Editor, etc.) the current screen does not correctly display. For example, in the CE I see just a small area in which the operation I am attempting (like rotating the cabinet) is occurring. This small screen is in the ce...

I have been working on a face frame library with inset doors/drawers. In the Door/Drawer Editor I have found what seems a bug to me. I am trying to configure drawer box settings to use an Undermount Salice Futura slide. The left and rignt clearance settings of 5/16 are fine. However, when I try to s...

Re: After the bugs are fixed in V6

Kerry- In the last paragraph of your post on this topic, you say that performance issues are still at the top of your wish list. I have to agree. But here is what shocks me. You are running a workstation with a killer cpu speed and a monster Quadro card and speed is still an issue !!! What I infer h...

Re: Mac User? Which Windows Virtualization Software to Use?

Thanks for posting this. I have had a Mac on my desk since 1986 and never wanted anything else, until I discovered eCabinets, that is. So, 6 years ago my son built a respectable PC for me (Athlon 64 4000, Quadro FX 1000, 4GB Ram, XP Pro) which has been adequate for my needs. Of course I found myself...

Population of Pull Location

In Door Drawer Editor after populating fields for knobs on Double Doors (populating for both doors at once) only the first set of selected fields actually places a pull. Then I am forced to return to the editor to place the second pull. Oddly, the fields for that second door still contain the values...
